Description Edit | History

Normandy, June 6th, 1944 – as you land on the well-defended beaches, a German machine gun nest is killing your comrades like flies. You must do something!

In D-Day Dice, players are Allied soldiers trying to organize improvised units for an attack against the machine gun nest. Each player starts the game with a unit of a few soldiers and nothing else. As the game progresses, he will collect resources and advance on the beach, sector by sector, as his unit grows stronger and deadlier. He will succeed...or die trying.

D-Day Dice is a multiplayer co-op game, where all players play their turn simultaneously and must help each other in order to stay alive. It also includes solitaire optional rules. Although built around dice rolling, this game is about resource management (soldiers, specialists, items and courage) and knowing when to move your unit. Resources are kept from turn to turn, so the players can plan ahead.

Note: This listing is for the commercial version of D-Day Dice. To download and play the game now, go to D-Day Dice: Free Trial Version.

3 Playermats - Allies & Axis
Two playermats designed to aid allied players and also the german player. These mats are very helpful especially for tracking resources (but also as a reference sheet). In my opinion these mats work better that original counters combined with reference sheet. To use playermats you should equip in 9 pawns for one mat(4 for resources + 4 additional for tracking bigger numbers, 1 for turn sequence) NOTE: These playermats are based on fenolin version uploaded earlier (but it was made only for allies).

8 Phase Four Brain Tickler
This is a "Brain Tickler" to help you through Phase 4 (Move & Advance) without forgetting anything. Have you ever advanced your unit only to realize a short while later that you forgot to take advantage of your 'Beachmaster'? Or have you ever simply forgotten to pay the Courage Cost after you advance? Or maybe you don’t remember whether you did or not? Perhaps you're in a groove with everything going your way... you advance, take care of business, then transition to Phase 1 to suddenly realize how you overlooked the crossed-out specialist tucked-away in your sector... the same one you still have in your hand and just used to help you make it this far. Hate it when that happens! If this sounds familiar, then this handy player's aid is for you! Or if you're simply getting old like...
